    It’s a cover for a sonic weapon (LRAD).

      That seems like a reasonable guess. I found it hard to believe that pirates who are willing to sail into a hail of bullets would be turned back by pop music. Do you have any information about whether that’s what they’re actually doing?

        I can’t speak to the LRAD bit (it wouldn’t surprise me at all), but as for ‘willing to sail into a hail of bullets’, they’re not. Due to regulatory changes, more ships are able to (legally) carry armed security forces, and the number of attacks and hijackings has plummeted. No ship with an armed security force has been successfully hijacked. More aggressive activity by the multinational naval force (CMF) off the Horn is also a factor.
